"The Stand" as written by and Mike Hasty Aaron Ruby....
As I walk in the bar of a restaraunt, there's always someone in there who stares.
Even when I buy a drink and my parka's stout in my face I can still feel it there.
'Cos it's cold, like the look of them, like "what the fucks he doing in here?!"
So I sit myself down and I stare right back, 'cos I tell you what I ain't scared.
So I sit there minding my own business 'cos I don't really like to be rude.
Plus I just wanna sit and have a quiet drink but I see your face is all screwed.
So up he jumps, not looking to pleased as he starts to walk over my way.
With his hand in his pocket and a bottle in the other when I heard this geezer say;
"Oi! You, boy, I swear I know you, you got with my bird called Lynn!"
I said "Howay mate, I ain't done nothin wrong!"
I just sit there and look at my Carling.

As I walk down the alley, with my mate Barry, see a few geezers and I wonder what they carry.
Hoods up, heads down, look at me. Circle made, they're a right little team.
But I keep moving forward, I don't run away, 'cos these people don't get me afraid.
'Cos I don't really care 'cos I've had a bad day.
I ain't got no money anyway.
So as we suspect they start to walk over and not lettin' us walk through.
And we can't really see who's under the hoods so we don't really know what to do.
So I look at Baryy and he ain't really fussed and he ain't gonna move out the way.
So we're standing there staring face to face when we heard this geezer say:
"Oi! You mate, gimme your phone or I'll put you straight to the floor!"
I said my mate Barry ain't a real nice geezer, he'll put your head through that door!

So what you lookin' at boy?
You got somethin' in your eye?
Your face is all screwed up mate, and your shoulder's all high!
So what you lookin' at boy?
You got somethin' in your eye?
Your face is all screwed up mate, and your shoulder's all high!

And I wake up wondering where I am and why my face feels really bruised.
And I look to my left and guess who I see, it's Barry breathing out of a tube.
And I don't understand and I don't remember how the fuck I ended up in here.
Maybe them blokes were bigger than we thought or we might have had too much beer.
So I start to reflect on what I might have done and why I've got these lumps on my head.
But here comes a nurse lookin' nice in her dress to explain why I'm in this bed.
But hold up, I think I recognise this girl as keeps walking over my way.
With a screwed up face, not looking too happy I heard this girl say.
"Oi! you, rat! Remember me? You broke my sisters heart!"
So I didn't turn round, I just jumped out the bed 'cos I didn't want this girl to start!
Hench!

So what you lookin' at girl?
You got somethin' in your eye?
Your face is all screwed up mate, and your shoulder's all high!
So what you lookin' at girl?
You got somethin' in your eye?
Your face is all screwed up mate, and your shoulder's all high!
So what you lookin' at boy?
You got somethin' in your eye?
Your face is all screwed up mate, and your shoulder's all high!

La la la, la la la la la la lala , la la la la la la la la.
